Ingredients
  1. 1 cup walnuts
  2. 1 cup almonds
  3. 2 tbsp flax meal
  4. 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  5. 2 cups medjool dates, pitted
  6. 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  7. 1/2 tsp sea salt
  8. 1 tsp cinnamon
  9. 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a large food processor (use ā€œSā€ blade) process the nuts, flax, and 3/4 cup coconut flakes until crumbly.
  2. Add in the dates, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt and process again until a consistent sticky batter is formed.
  3. Use a spoon to form balls approx. 1 inch in diameter and spoon into pyrex glass dish
  4. Sprinkle bites with remaining 1/4 cup coconut flakes.
  5. Place bites in freezer to set for 1-2 hours before serving.
Notes
  1. I like to store mine in the freezer and remove whenever we want them for a snack. Allow to thaw for 15-20 minutes before eating. Perfect snacks for flights and road trips!
